Teen Trauma and Defiance as an Expression as Trauma at Mt. Pleasant Academy


Many troubled teens who have dealt with trauma often express defiance as a result. This can be very difficult for parents to deal with, but Mt. Pleasant Academy's residential treatment center can offer your troubled boy all of the therapy necessary to help them recover. As a parent, you may feel hopeless about the problems that your troubled boy is dealing with, but Mt. Pleasant Academy offers more than enough help. Residential treatment offers troubled teens much more than counseling alone can offer. If you are a parent that wants to learn more about what Mt. Pleasant Academy offers to troubled teens, please call us for more information today at 866-439-8110.

Residential treatment centers offer students much more intensive therapy compared to counseling alone. Even though short term counseling may be the answer for some troubled teens, students with more serious problems often need therapy for a longer period of time. Mt. Pleasant Academy is very effective at developing a treatment plan for each and every individual student. Mt. Pleasant Academy also offers an accredited scholastic program for students who have let their grades slip over time. Our program has all of the core classes for high school graduation available.
